query would be a better fit in either the regular C&V forum or else in the mechanics/repair forum

perhaps a moderator will move it to one of those

maybe. Finding a replacement can be costly.

Depends on how big a chip.
I would try and put it on the new fork.
See how it fits.
Ask yourself what damage can the chip cause, if any, and what would be the outcome if it.

Clean up any sharp edges.

Depends where the chip is. I don't have an issue with a broken crown race. Location can make a diffderence.

From your picture, it doesn't appear that the chip extends to the bearing race or the surface that will interface with the fork crown. Provided this is true and the pictures don't deceive me, I cannot see why it would be a problem.

There might be a greater chance of dirt ingress because the black sealing material is exposed. If I were you, when installing, I'd try to position the chipped portion above the shoulder of the fork crown (i.e. off to the side, rather than front and back), so that it's not above the tire, so it doesn't end up picking up grit thrown up from the tire.

most likely work but it would bug me!
and just be a corrosion magnet, yes could be greased up but as noted the seal area is compromised- will be a continuing nuisance.

if this was an old Record head set- parts prices would be open market.
as this is most likely pretty recent, I would investigate a service part purchase.

Or fill the chip with JB Weld, spray paint it silver metallic, and install it on a bike you're going to sell!

you bring to mind an old Don Imus skit ( before he went… wacko)
it was about a used car lot at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave…
notice the clear headlights
the smiling grill
you come see us and we’ll put it to you.

or one of those eBay vintage bike shop sellers out of Berlin?

If you can find a Tange (Levin) headset crown race it may work.
